I would not use anything by purina because of the inferior ingredients they use.
1. soy , causes allergies
2. animal fat could be anything, usually reprocessed restaurant grease.
the fat should be named to make sure of what it is.
3. carmel color , colors and dyes cause seizures
4. menadione sodium bisulfite complex causes liver damage


Purina One Beyond Chicken and Whole Oat Meal
Ingredients: Chicken, chicken meal, whole oat meal, whole barley, soybean meal, whole brown rice, animal fat preserved with mixed-tocopherols (form of vitamin E), dried beet pulp, dried egg product, natural flavor, fish oil, caramel color, salt, dried carrots, dried tomatoes, dried apples, calcium phosphate, potassium chloride, choline chloride, zinc sulfate, vitamin E supplement, ferrous sulfate, manganese sulfate, niacin, calcium carbonate, vitamin A supplement, calcium pantothenate, thiamine mononitrate, copper sulfate, riboflavin supplement, vitamin B12 supplement, garlic oil, pyridoxine hydrochloride, folic acid, vitamin D3 supplement, calcium iodate, biotin, menadione sodium bisulfite complex (source of vitamin K activity), sodium selenite

Also they are probably playing with numbers to make the meat content look better than it is.

A sample breakdown of percentages illustrating the point
Chicken - 20% (Oh, and this includes the 60% of the chicken that is water and gets lost in the processing, so you are looking at a final meat content of under 10%)
chicken meal - 15.5%
oatmeal - 15.25%
barley - 15%
soybean - 14.75%
brown rice - 14.5%
everything else - 5%

which would give us 25.5% of dry meat content versus 59.5% of grains.

I think it's an unhealthy food for all the reasons Dawnben mentioned. I could never, in good conscience feed it to my dogs.

Purina ONE Beyond has cheap, low quality ingredients, but isn't even cheap! Where I'm at, it's about $9 for a 3.5 pound bag. Just for one food example, you could feed Whole Earth Farms for $10 for an 8 pound bag and the ingredients are actually good. There are lots of other better foods out there!

You'll find that most people on this site do not like Purina or Science Diet.




I love Purina Pro Plan. I don't think Purina is a bad choice of food at all. However, I'd stick with what you just switched to for a bit.
subado and Foresthound like this.

Definitely one of the best of the food carried in the big stores such as Walmart. IMO way better than Ol' Roy, Kibbles 'n Bits, Pedigree, etc. However I definitely do not like it as much as as I do Taste of the Wild, Wellness, Canidae, Merrick, and other such brands.

If interested, this site IMO has pretty fair reviews! They scored Purina One Beyond as 3 out of 5 stars.

You think that "animal" fat, "animal" digest, and menadionine bisulfite are good ingredients? Those animal sources are completely generic and can include 4D meat, euthanized dogs and cats, rancid oil, etc. Plus menadionine has been shown to cause many health problems over long term use. Your dog may look healthy now, but those other ingredients are like slow poisons.

Many show dog people feed Purina because it is promoted heavily at dog shows and they also have programs for breeders where they get it much less expensive. Also, a lot of Purina feeders feed supplements or table scraps to fill in the gaps. And then there's the long term effects of some of those ingredients.

Nutro also has menadione bisulfite complex (artificial vitamin K).

Honestly I'm surprised at that, especially since that site stresses paying attention to the protein source instead of just the protein listed on the bag.

Dog food analysis has the scathing reviews, but it looks like they reviewed an older formula.
